I guess we'll just agree to disagree that Purcell is what the Canucks need.
Its not that I think there wouldn't be offers for youth, its that I don't think they would be worthwhile. Teams tend to be reticent to move young guys whose value isn't primarily based in potential and that kind of risk doesn't make sense for the Canucks.
